The Big Lottery is to launch a new £150million fund in 2014 specifically targeted at community-led enterprises across England.
The big question is whether Share Community Interest Companies will be eligible for funding - they are currently excluded from some Big Lottery funds, but from the information released to date it looks as though they will be able to apply to the new fund.

Thanks for this Geof, hadnt seen it
Just a comment on Big Lottery eligibility, they have recently updated me to say they will consider CIC limited by Share for funds such as Awards for All, the monies have to be ringfenced etc but aside that all as normal.
